Growers of Hillbilly Fruit. Pawpaws and Persimmons.
Al Horn Pawpaw Description
Selected by Al Horn, this pawpaw is very light in both the colour of the skin and the flesh. Very mild but nice flavour with light pineapple aftertaste.
Pawpaws (Asimina Triloba) are related to custard apples and cherimoya, in the sugar apple family, and yet they grow in the temperate zone, having moved north as Ice Age glaciers receded. Flavours of mango, melon, banana, raspberry and pineapple come from this creamy fruit. Like many fruits, if you don’t know what you’re doing and you let them get bruised, or you pick them under-ripe they won't taste very good!
